The Fifteenth Annual Scottish Festival is coming up May 6-8, 2016...
THE FESTIVAL, CEILIDH, AND CONCERT HAVE BEEN CANCELLED!
The site of the festival is being swamped with water and we are unable to access the fields. The entertainment and other things involved in the Ceilidh and Concert we're all dependent on the Games. The church service will be on Sunday as scheduled.
We are so very sorry for any inconvenience.
...And we are looking forward to a great Festival … We will have the events, exhibitors and activities you have come to expect … pipe bands, professional entertainers, heavy athletics, living history presentations, Scottish goods vendors, Scottish country dancing, dancing competitions, piping competitions, sheep herding demonstrations, genealogy assistance … and much more.
The 2016 Festival is held the weekend of May 6-8, 2016 in Bridgeport, West Virginia. Friday night has a Ceilidh, a party with music, food and conversation. The main Festival is on Saturday all day at the Bridgeport City Park. On Saturday evening we have a concert with our professional entertainers.at the Bridgeport High School. On Sunday, there is a Kirkin of the Tartans, a short parade in downtown Clarksburg followed by a church service at the First Presbyterian Church.
Our Festival's objective is to celebrate and educate about our Scottish and Celtic heritage. The Scots and Scots-Irish were instrumental in the initial settlement of what is now West Virginia. Most West Virginians have at least some Scots and Scots-Irish ancestry, but many know little about either their own ancestry or the culture that has contributed so much to our State and Country.
